We enjoyed our root beer float and chocolate shake at the counter. Our service was quite personable and shared stories about working at Blake's. She even had us try Marshmallow Cokes, which we'd never had before. Cost us $1.75 (plus tip).

Yes they serve food -- and nickel cokes -- from the soda fountain. No kidding. But a cherry coke will set you back a dime. Don't miss the $1 pimento cheese sandwich; only other place I know you can get that deal is at Augusta...More
